WWE Developmental Star Zander Jones Starting At NXT This Week

SaukValley.com has an article up profiling Alex “Zander” Jones, who recently signed a three-year developmental deal and is moving to Tampa, Florida this week to begin training at NXT.

While he was working on his masters in strength and conditioning at USC, Jones met former WWE superstars Rikishi and Gangrel at the Los Angeles Fitness Expo. They convinced him to start training at the KnokX wrestling school and just a week later, he was met John Cena at the USC weight room when WWE was in town for a RAW taping. Cena was so impressed with Jones that he invited him to a WWE tryout camp this past August.

WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Gerald Brisco were so impressed with Jones that they told him he could be a top WWE superstar one day. Jones told SaukValley.com:

“They all said, ‘You could be our guy. Look at John Cena. That could be you.’ Now, anything less than being a champ would be a disappointment.”

Jones can be followed on Twitter at @TheZanderJones.
